Ferguson Boy 1C", and a 1854 La Crimea medal, each approx. 1 1/4" diameter. 2nd item: Framed lithograph, DEPARTURE OF THE GRENADIER GUARDS FROM TRAFALGAR SQUARE, FEB. 22, 1854, ON THEIR ROUTE TO THE EAST by J.

Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary", while handwritten labels read "Julian Paunceofote British Legation Washington DC' and "Thos. Mosley Late 17th Lancers one of the "600" Light Brigade Battalion Oct. 25, 1854." 17" x 20 1/2" framed. 4th and 5th items: two 10" x 7" sepia toned prints of General J.

CONDITION: Victoria Regina and La Crimea medals show oxidation; Order of the Bath in excellent condition. Glass broken on Siege of Sebastopol print, light toning and creasing to print, tears at top appear to have been repaired. Some folds at tear lines to naturalization papers.
